She was the top placing freshman in the meet. • Police are looking for Da- vid Padgett, 27, of Winslow, and Bradley W. Woods, 41 of Washington, on charges of burglary with serious bodi- ly injury, a level 2 felony, bur- glary resulting in serious bodily injury, a level 3 felo- ny and battery by means of a deadly weapon, a level 5 felo- ny. They are accused of beat- ing Dennis Clark with a base- ball bat and stealing a gun from Clark. • Veterans were honored at county schools with services and the Petersburg VFW went to nursing homes to honor res- ident veterans for their ser- vice to their county. • Nineteen local busi- nesses received grants from COVID relief funds as part of a $250,000 COVID relief grant to Pike County. • Active COVID cases in Pike County fell to 10, with 17 new cases of COVID report- ed over the last seven days in Pike County. • The Buffalo Trace Coun- cil of the Boy Scouts of Amer- ica announced they plan to sell the Old Ben Scout Reser- vation in Pike County to raise money to help pay off a pro- posed $ 850 million settlement with victims of sexual abuse involved in Scouting. Old Ben Scout Reservation opened in the late 1980s after Old Ben Coal and many of its employ- ees donated the land, money and hours of volunteer labor to build the camp located near Cato in Pike County. • The Pike County Com- munity Foundation handed out $110,929 of grants to lo- cal volunteer and civic orga- nizations, as well as education programs. DECEMBER • Julie Hunt-Robling, 34, of rural Petersburg, was arrest- ed on federal charges of con- spiracy to distribute meth and fentanyl during a large Drug Enforcement Agency bust that arrested about 30 people from Evansville to Indianap- olis. More than 46 pounds of meth, 700 grams of fentanyl, 30 firearms, six vehicles and $ 300,000 were seized during the raid. • Former Petersburg resi- dent Gil Hodges was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame 58 years after he retired.

The big cost increase was blamed on inflation of material and labor costs. Petersburg, a few days later, learned a 40 -year loan with an interest rate near- ly one percent lower than ex- pected would help reduce the cost of the projects. Pe- tersburg Mayor R.C. Klipsch said the second most expen- sive part of the project after a new water treatment plant was the cost borrowing the money. Petersburg's water plant, built in 1932, is the second oldest in Indiana. Petersburg's water rates for an average user are expected to increase by $14. • Everett Attaway was named the 2022 recipient of the Pike County Lilly En- dowment Community Schol- arship. • Pike County is one of five counties in the Indiana First Region that received $15 mil- lion as part of a READI grant. • A late-night, early-morn- ing light snow resulted in bridges near the Pike-Daviess line on I-69 being ice covered.
